Outcome:Sentence overturned and remanded for new sentencing
Description:As a law clerk for Attorney Gerald Beaver, Adam Barrington wrote the brief on behalf of Ms. Blocker for her appeal before the NC Court of Appeals. The case centered on the suppression of a prior uncounseled conviction obtained in violation of the defendant's right to counsel as it was used to elevate that defendant's prior record level for sentencing on a subsequent conviction. The Court of Appeals held in favor for our client based solely on the brief written by Adam Barrington.
